Female patient, 59 years old, has a history of previous skin cancer lesions and a job
that involves a lot of outdoor activities. In her family, there are also 2 members who
have been diagnosed and treated for skin cancer. The patient had many pigmented
lesions on her skin. She had periodic total body skin check but not continuously.

Recently, the patient discovered a nodule that grew rapidly in just 2 months and did
not heal on her back.

The results showed a Squamous Cell Carcinoma – SCC.

Symptoms of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin include:
– A firm bump on the skin, called a nodule. The nodule might be the same color
as the skin, or it might look different. It can look pink, red, black or brown,
depending on skin color.
– A flat sore with a scaly crust.
– A new sore or raised area on an old scar or sore.
– A rough, scaly patch on the lip that may become an open sore.
– A sore or rough patch inside the mouth.
– A raised patch or wartlike sore on or in the anus or on the genitals.

Make an appointment with a health care professional for a sore or scab that doesn’t
heal in about two months or a flat patch of scaly skin that won’t go away.
